Re: Fasting blood glucose

I am obviously a person with "dawn phenomenon" . My non-fasting blood glucose readings are fine. So is my HgA1C. I cannot get my fasting blood glucose below 100. I am tracking it and I am always about 5 to 10 points higher in the a.m. than when I went to bed 8 or 9 hours before - and I do...

Re: New to the board--interesting article "Apoliporotein E antagonist . . ."

But what about apoe4's activity as a transcription factor or it's general toxicity? Just finished reading a paper showing the presence of E4 lowers the production of >50% of the proteins necessary for a functioning electron transport chain in mitochondria, including *all* of those necessary to buil...

Re: Men with BPH and APOE4

I decided to take a look at men's average BMI as an indicator of insulin resistance. For China: 24.2, Japan: 23.6, US: 28.8, Canada: 27.6. I know that Stavia told me that to use BMI as an indicator for insulin resistance for (at least South) Asians, you would use a much lower cutoff than for Caucas...

Re: Men with BPH and APOE4

What do you make of the egg/prostate noise summarized nicely here. (The site loads slowly, but it works & is worth the wait.) A number of the cited studies use food frequency questionnaires, which I usually discount. The Choline C-11 PET scan is interesting. Everything is association, with no r...

Re: 21 Proven Ways to Increase Brain Blood Flow

Nice list! I'm fond of combining 1 (exercise), 2 (cold) & 3 (sun) in the winter with fasting, which I consider a form of 17 (keto). So I exercise in the Sun with as few clothes on as possible while fasted 16 hours or more. For example, rock climbing in January with the air temp at freezing weari...

Re: Questions about starting ketogenic diet

Daymoo, Sodium can also be an issue. When you go keto, your insulin levels will drop. This signals the kidneys to excrete sodium (high levels of insulin do the reverse). The sodium excretion can be large enough to cause the body to also excrete more potassium to keep the ratio in balance. So you mig...

Re: Modified citrus pectin can minimize heavy metal toxicity

I had also listened to Wendy Myer's interview with the maker of Pectasol-C. He makes the point that the studies are using Pectasol-C and says that any brand selling for significantly less money can't be truly modified the way it needs to be. Naturally he has skin in the game, but I can't decide whe...
